Lyrics:

LA JURUMBA

The cops them want to test I

Blessed Jah my chalice, I daily bread.

The cops them want to test I

Selassie I King of Kings, Lord of Lords, conquering lion of the tribe of Judah.

The cops them want to test I

Lady! Come in the party and feel alright!

The cops them want to test I

Hear this!

I grew up in Managua, Nicaragua,
I found myself smoking marijuana in the neighbourhood
Overthere in San Judas, dread, on 23rd street,
Smoking it with the girls of San Andres island

Oh my brother, I don't want no problems
No, for Jah's sake, it's not worth it
Natty natty dreadlocks no want to bear no chains
Natty natty dreadlocks no want no condemnations

Sandinista I learnt the lesson
Guerillero for the revolution
Besides of having a whole out of heart
Natty natty dread uses the reason
Besides of having a whole out of heart
Natty natty dread uses the reason.

The cops them want to test I

Blessed Jah my chalice, I daily bread

The cops them want to test I

Selassie I King of Kings, Lord of Lords, conquering lion of the tribe of Judah

The cops them want to test I

Lady! Come in the party and feel alright!

The cops them want to test I

Hear this!

I come from Nicaragua, from the Carribean coast,
Overthere where you can listen to tululu y el mayombe being played
Pass under gal and buay them pass under
Pass under gal and buay them pass under
A tululu gal and buay them pass under
A tululu gal and buay them pass under

Coming from the coast I endured humiliation
Rastaman's for emancipation
Selassie I! I need distraction!
Jah Rastafari is the only solution
Selassie I! I need distraction!
Jah Rastafari is the only solution.

The cops them want to test I

Blessed Jah my chalice, I daily bread

The cops them want to test I

Selassie I King of Kings, Lord of Lords, conquering lion of the tribe of Judah

The cops them want to test I

Lady! Lady Come in the party and feel alright!

The cops them want to test I

Hey! them coming,them coming...
